Special Announcement

What better time to launch a hybrid conference than in the year that the theme is “Staking Our Claim in the New World.” A hybrid conference brings together the energy and excitement of a live event together with the collaboration, reach, and convenience of the internet. We are excited to build upon our past successes, offering new and innovative approaches to learning and networking. The hybrid structure will help us to increase participation by engaging more of the case manager community and increasing the value you receive. These past months have proven that nothing beats face-to-face interaction and engagement, and adding the virtual component with the in-person allows us to take advantage of the best of both worlds. As an attendee and/or exhibitor, registration options for both in-person and virtual experiences will be available.
Plans are underway for a program that’s full of diverse education sessions, leading industry experts, and valuable networking opportunities to allow case managers and allied health care professionals to come away informed, motivated, and empowered to stake their claim in the new world. Want a sneak peak: Broadway’s longest-running "Lion King," Alton Fitzgerald White, will share his secret to fulfillment and joy in everyday work and life. Marvelless Mark, leadership rock star, will help you to perform like a rock star with inventive success principles from your favorite music celebrities – business is rock 'n' roll’s untold story after all. Not to mention learning from your peers within the case manager community that will share their expertise and experience to best tackle the challenges ahead. Stay tuned for more program announcements.
Mark your calendar and plan to attend the CMSA 2021 Annual Conference, June 8-11 virtually, or in-person in Orlando, and prepare to stake your claim in the new world.
